Wow, where did the time go?! I opened CPB in Brentwood in 2009, after going to visit Caffe Luxxe and the owner, Mark, mentioned that the landlord was looking for a Pilates or Yoga studio to fill the Children’s section of the old Dutton’s Bookstore space. We had 7 1/2 wonderful years there until they closed the building for good.

We then moved to Santa Monica and gained more space, 2 separate rooms and our own bathroom! This allowed us to sub lease to Dr. Diedra Manns PT of Monarch Wellness, and we now have our own highly sought after Physical Therapist on site.

I went through a studio move and a move back to my homeland, Australia, all in 2016. It has been a great learning experience of how to own and manage a business from afar. It takes a great team and especially a great manager to do so- Marlena, I am so grateful to have you by my side.

I come back three or four times a year, as I miss being in my studio so much- it’s always a joy to see my clients who’ve been with us for so long now, some the whole ten years!

We had a bit of a celebration the other week, so here’s a couple of photos from it.

Thanks for reading,


(CPB Owner)
